Philanthropy New York Members Celebrated in Crain's New York Business's '50 Most Powerful Women in New York' List
This year New York state saw the first woman in its history ascend to the governor’s seat. And the attorney general, also a woman, helped pave the way for her by holding the previous governor to account for his alleged misdeeds.
These are just two examples of the ways women in this state have made history and grabbed headlines since Crain’s last 50 Most Powerful Women ranking. Women across industries, from politics to fashion, health care to real estate, in the past two years have helped to set the agenda for how New York rebuilds post-pandemic.
To compile the 2021 version of the list, Crain’s editors picked the women making the biggest waves in their respective fields. We invested hours of thought into building an inclusive list and making room for newcomers. As a result, the 2021 ranking is ambitious and diverse, encompassing women of all ages and ethnicities, and there are quite a few new names on the list.
Prepare to be inspired by this impressive group of women.
